I enjoyed this museum; however, it is about the life of Sigmund Freud (not about his theories). Although, you can purchase his works, essays, and other Freudian-inspired material in the gift shop. I'd recommend this museum to those interested in Sigmund Freud, and it is pretty family oriented. However, I would not recommend it to adolescents (under 14). I think... More

My guidebook depicts this museum as one of the "Top Sites" inside Vienna. Except some antique collection of Dr. Sigmund Freud, all items being displayed are old furnitures, photographs and papers. I know that Dr. Freud is a great psychologist but can't realize the value of this museum.

There's almost nothing here. there's the furniture from the waiting room, but nothig else, just photos. the rest is all in London where Freud fled to from the Nazis in Austria. You're better off visiting the freud museum in London.

Since I am interested in psychology it was a very interesting place to visit. Not very big, however by taking an audio guide and a leaflet with all the descriptions of the objects, you can spend some very great and informative hours there. I would not recommend it to those who simply like to "look" in the museums, since here... More

I have to admit, based on the reviews, and some conversations with locals, I had low expectations coming to the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised! Although the lay-out and the way you engage with the exhibits is dated, it is effective at getting it's message across. The museum itself is in the Freud's family apartment,... More

Highly recommended. It wasn't easy to find using the map we had, but well worth the effort it took to find it. It gives a good insight into the life of Freud - particularly interesting is learning of what happened to the entire family during WW2.

THE FREUD MUSEUM IN VIENNA is best to be compared with a stone age computer that missed all the updates, or perhaps even better to an old fashioned type writer. Auden said in a famous poem: ‘If often he was wrong and, at times absurd, to us he is no more a person, now but a whole climate of opinion.’... More

If you're one of the Freud fans this is exactly what you have to visit!!! This is not very far away from the center. You can feel the atmosphere even from the staircase. After visiting the museum itself you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the outdoor cafe.

I've read other reviews of this attraction that warned that it wasn't very comprehensive so I was prepared for a museum that was a little light on. This was not my experience, though. It started with a little room that was showing home videos of Freud! Home movies! And his daughter, Anna, was providing the explanatory voice over. Then there... More

If you are a psychology nerd, you will love this museum. It is small, but very nicely put together. The audio guides provide basic information with the option to audibly learn about a few other items in each room. For everything else there are guide books that are extremely informatiomal. The only downside is that since the family moved to... More
